Disco Elysium gets a brutal Hardcore Mode

Disco Elysium isn’t resting on its laurels as it continues to scoop up awards and praise for its levelled-up spin on the RPG. Developer ZA/UM has now introduced a Hardcore Mode that is perfect for people who have already completed the game and are ready to get dragged across the coals. For anyone willing to attempt Hardcore Mode as a first playthrough …who hurt you?

See the full details over on Disco’s Steam community hub (pow! here it is), and welcome to Hardcore True Detective mode, chums:

– You’re gonna fail more
– You’re gonna be poorer
– You’re gonna get screwed by Big Pharma
– You’re gonna learn to love drugs
– You’re gonna treasure your clothes
– You’re gonna think more carefully
– You’re gonna wise up faster

This …well, it sounds just a lot more like real life tbh.

“This isn’t meant for first-time detectives who aren’t already familiar with Martinaise. If you’re new on the beat, come back after you’ve already enjoyed your time in Revachol. This one’s for officers ready to burn out on a wild ride,” wrote ZA/UM.

“But if you’ve loved this strange story in this forgotten city, it’s a way to experience it from a new perspective—a Martinaise perspective. For those of us here at ZA/UM, who’ve already spent hundreds of hours playing, this new mode been a wonderful chance to revisit the game in a fresh way.”

Disco Elysium is currently 20% off on Steam, at a reasonable £27.99.
